    I HAVE A 1 1/2 YO RIR HEN. SHE HAS BEEN STANDING AROUND ALONE AND PUFFED OUT. SHE HAS A PIECE OF REDDISH TISSUE COMING FROM HER VENT. I HAVE TRIED PREPARATION H AND HONEY. I AM NOT SURE HOW TO GO ABOUT REDUCING THE PROLAPSE. I PUT HER IN A DOG CRATE DARKENED WITH TOWELS. WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?

    Try placing a mixture of olive oil and sugar on it to help shrink. Then put on some gloves and dab a finger in Vaseline and push the fleshy part back inside the vent so it is not hanging out. Good luck!
